Since 1986. The Springboro Christmas Festival still features shopping opportunities, with heated tents full of craftsmen and vendors selling unusual gift items, as well as the gift inventory to be found in all the local shops. We still have a parade, with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus, at noon on Saturday, and there is plenty of good festival food all along the street. We still have music and special activities in the Entertainment Tent and strolling musicians and entertainers on the street. Horse-drawn wagons still transport festival- goers from one end of the street to the other. With very few exceptions, all of this entertainment is free. Over the years, the Festival has grown, now extending the full 7-block length of South Main Street, from Central to Mill. With the street closed for the weekend, it is now possible to have children’s rides and a tent for their own activities. For many years, the choruses from the Springboro schools have entertained on Friday night and Sunday afternoon. We hope this will become one more Festival tradition.
